Between June 18 and 21 Karlstad university will be hosting the 31st International Symposium on Computer-Based Medical Systems, IEEE CBMS 2018. And there is a great interest – more than 200 contributions have been submitted. Selecting amongst the papers is hard work for the international committee of the conference. Bridget Kane, associate lecturer in informatics at Karlstad Business School, is organising the arrangement and she is pleased with all the interest shown.
CBMS stands for Computer-Based Medical Systems, and the conference brings researchers from a variety of fields together: computer science, informatics and engineering, as well as experts in medical technology active within both academia and the medical sector.
During the conference a wide array of topics will be discussed, such as e-health, big data, biomedical informatics, medical records systems, virtual reality in the teaching of medical students, sensor systems for neonatal care, analyses of medical data and many others.
